My former brother-in-law was a music teacher/play director in a small central PA town. His son appeared in most of his musicals, so we would drive up from South Jersey to support them both. There was another very talented young man in the cast as well. I asked both boys for their autographs after one show so I’d have them before they became famous.
My then-nephew is Ben Dibble, who has enjoyed an excellent career in Philadelphia as an actor and instructor. His friend is Lucas Steele, who, years later, autographed my Natasha/Pierre Playbill at dinner as we discussed his Tony nomination.
